In appropriate environments,* a bar develops to help users to determine when to change their filters. A peel-back label helps protect the indicator from overspray and debris.
The 3M Service Life Indicator can help provide added peace of mind as a complement to your current change-out schedule and, in some cases, replace your current practices.
The 3M Service Life Indicator can be used to complement your current filter change schedule. You must change your filter at the normally scheduled interval or when the ESLI indicates, whichever occurs first. In some cases you can use the ESLI as a primary method to determine filter change, replacing your current change schedule method. To find out if the 3M Service Life Indicator may be used as the primary method for determining your filter change-out schedule:
1) Perform exposure monitoring to quantify the organic vapour exposure levels in your work place. For more information visit Organic Vapour Monitors.
2) Enter the monitoring results in the Select and Service Life Software If the ESLI is not applicable as a primary method, it may still be used to complement your current filter change schedule.
*Please see the 6000i Series User Instructions or the Select Life Software to determine if these filters are appropriate for your work environment.
